Track Name: My Summer
My summer
has gone away
My winter
is here to stay

California
is far away
Just let it die
and drift away

My fingers
refuse to play
They turn black
and fall away

No flowers
will bloom today
I watch the sky
for birds of prey
Track Name: Sit and Wonder
I sit around and I wonder
what my old eyes could have seen
if I had run with the others
chasing the tail of a dream

I sit around and I wonder
is there a man in the sky?
Or if there’s fire burning under
Where will I go when I die?

Moments of doubt and dismay
bleed into hours every day
Fragments of joy in between
killed by a side never seen
Track Name: Revolution
Came upon a sitting sage
inside a graveyard
and I asked him what had
long been on my mind

Well his voice was barely
louder than a whisper
Sages are these days
so very hard to find

Can you tell me how to
start a revolution?
Revolution doesn’t
happen by itself

Can you tell me how to
start a revolution?
Revolution must begin
within yourself

Can the banker love
the poet and the pauper?
Can the hunter feel
the heart beat in his prey?
Can the farmer feed
the hungry without slaughter?
Can the soldier make
the hatred go away?

Can you tell me how to
start a revolution?
Revolution doesn’t
happen by itself

Can you tell me how to
start a revolution?
Revolution must begin
within yourself
Track Name: Crashed Warship
Our engines falter
We’re falling faster
There’s no escape from
the deadly master

Our anger turns
into sorrow
No hero’s welcome
tomorrow

The air is poison
The ground is rising
There is no future
on the horizon

Our anger turns
into sorrow
No hero’s welcome
tomorrow
Track Name: Sleep Forever
This life isn’t for us
It’s sorrow and pain
The heavenly chorus
is calling our name

We could sleep forever
Leave this life together

But gravity holds us
from floating away

There’s nothing between us
We’re one and the same
Your blood and diseases
flow deep in my veins

We could sleep forever
Leave this life together

Your medicine always
helps deaden the pain

We could sleep forever
Leave this life together

Oh, why do they save us
from floating away?

Because you’re in my brain
Track Name: Thank You
Someday soon
you’ll wake up
and realize
it’s too late

Atmosphere
of madness
is realigning
your fate

Consciousness
and wisdom
have been revised
and replaced

Fill the skies
and oceans
The crucibles
of your waste

Toxic lies
and sickness
The medicine
is all fake

Racing for
destruction
and drowning us
in your wake

So, thank you
